As President Trump tours Israel, his administration is preparing to release a budget proposal that’s expected to slash social programs. While that’s in line with Republican orthodoxy, the proposal worries some GOP lawmakers who want to protect Medicare expansion.

NPR's Geoff Bennett (@GeoffRBennett) speaks with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson about the budget and other news out of Washington.

This segment aired on May 22, 2017.
